K-State gets shot at #4 Michigan

Coaches will call it a measuring-stick game, and K-State should know much more about itself after on Friday afternoon’s showdown with #4 Michigan.  The Cats and Wolverines will play for the preseason NIT championship at Madison Square Garden in New York City.  With a win over Michigan, K-State will likely enter the top 25, and know they’re capable of beating anybody in the country.  But even with a loss, the Cats will learn where they were exposed by Michigan, so they can improve.

K-State reached the preseason NIT finals with a 66-63 victory over Delaware on Wednesday, while Michigan rallied to beat Pittsburgh 67-62.  The Wolverines are led by preseason all-American guard Trey Burke, along with the sons of former NBA stars, Tim Hardaway Jr. and Glen Robinson III.

K-State and Michigan tip off at 4:00pm on Friday afternoon in New York City.  Pregame begins at 3:00 from the K-State Sports Network with Wyatt Thompson and Stan Weber.
